Great site, John. Too bad for me I didn't find it sooner. I am installing a bathroom with ceramic tile floor and a tiled shower. I installed the pvc pan liner without any pitch beneath it. The mud floor in the shower is in and it pitches to the drain. Anything I can do at this point to eliminate the possibility of the reoccuring mildew issue I have read about on your site due to the accumulation of water in the mortar bed? Did I see somewhere about sealing the mortar bed before installing the tile with thinset?

Hi JP,

We have just had a lenghthy discussion on the subject of sealing the mud bed. The issue remains controversial, to say the least. Check it out. Got to get to work. Be back this afternoon.

JP,

I would go ahead and complete the shower and not worry about it. I would not try to waterproof the surface of the mud. If there are no other obstructions (such as the flange being up off the floor), you'll probably be okay.
